Backstage stories from a Hair and Makeup guru
In the UK Caroline Clements is possibly one of the most re-knowned hair and makeup artists today having working across theatre, film, TV and rock & roll for over 40 years. Learning her trade in the hallowed rooms of the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre, Caroline also worked on musicals including Les Miserables and film sets including Mohamed Ali and the Last Of The Mohicans. Famous figures along the way include Broadway stars such as Patti LuPone and of course the Rolling Stones who she toured with for many years.
Here she talks to MAG_BTM about her beginnings as a hairdresser in London and how her career developed into becoming an international fixture on Virgin Atlantic!
